Returning to London’s Brockwell Park on 27th May, Wide Awake festival have announced the first wave of names for their 2023 edition.

Announced today, Gilla Band, Osees, Arooj Aftab, Sunset Rollercoaster, Ty Segall, A Place To Bury Strangers, Erol Alkan and more have been confirmed to be performing, with even more names to be announced soon.

“There’s a feeling amongst us all at Wide Awake that the 2023 lineup is the most varied and interesting so far. Osees and Ty Segall are the types of catalysts that inspire a generation,” co-founder Keith Miller says. “We’re lucky enough to also have the next gen with Glass Beams, Estella and a whole cohort of brilliant new acts we know you’ll all become massive fans of. And A Place To Bury Strangers represent everything about DIY music and that ethic. Wide Awake evolved out of a warehouse festival they played and we cannot wait to have them back.

“The best thing? This is just the first announcement. We’ve got plenty more we’re really excited to share with you.”
